A Sign of Organized Labour's Weakness or Strength?

You decide.

From The Star:

Labour unrest in Canada has dropped to its lowest level since the federal government began keeping data 30 years ago.

The number of lost person days because of strikes and lockouts plunged to 813,336 in 2006 from 4.1 million days in 2005, according to recent statistics from Human Resources and Development Canada (HRDC).

The 2006 figure is also more than 45 per cent below the lowest previous mark of 1.5 million days in 1993.

Perhaps the construction strikes that have been going on this year in Ontario will show that statistic was a bit of an anomaly?
